This delicious Brunello already has 9 years of bottle age, which means it is flat-out delicious right now, but has the capacity to age and improve over the next 4-5 years.
This is full-ish to full bodied with a suave, sexy mouthfeel that retains an elegance and terrific drinkability now. Has a great mix of red and blackfruit flavors going from lifted cherry and red currant notes to warm, sun ripened blackberry and black raspberry. Underpinnings of of cigar box, aged tobacco leaf and a light waft of tilled garden earthiness that makes me want to smell it all night. l do love Brunello and this is an excellent value for the region. - KEITH
